Wishes Across Canada

What is your wish for Canada in its next 150 years?

From national hope to a local focus, this is your opportunity to add your voice and imagination to a growing conversation. Share the changes that will build on our success to improve our communities and country.

#Wish150 is open to all during 2017. At the end of the year and throughout the year during our exhibition events, your wishes will be shared with the federal government, community organizations, fellow Canadians and citizens of the world.

Open access and an analysis of your wishes is vital in shaping and unlocking a prosperous future for all of our communities.
